AMTA Announces Consumer Awareness Program

AMTA is happy to announce a major, multi-year commitment to public education on the benefits of massage therapy and to promote AMTA members. AMTA members are trusted professionals in massage therapy, and we know that some of the most important things we can do for you and your practice are to educate the public about the value of massage therapy for health and wellness, and the importance of choosing an AMTA member.

The association is expanding our efforts with consumer media to share current research on the health benefits of massage therapy. Enhanced media efforts began in late May and have already begun to produce increased news coverage about massage therapy for health and wellness. These resources and others will be available to help you participate in your own client outreach activities.

Additionally, in a significant multi-year program, AMTA will be traveling to major consumer markets around the country to share the benefits of massage with the public through direct interaction, education and massage demonstrations. For more information and to volunteer at summer 2012 tour stops, visit Volunteer Connections.
